Fuel Policy

Should I bring the vehicle back with a full tank of fuel?
Yes.  The vehicle will normally be supplied with a full tank of fuel. You must return it to us with the same amount of fuel it had in it when you picked it up,usually a full tank as shown on the factory-installed fuel gauge.  We recommend you fill up as close to the return location as you can on the return date, and keep the receipt to show us. If you do not return the vehicle with a full tank and you can not show us a receipt for fuel we will charge you.

Fuel Options

I plan to travel more than 120 kilometres and want peace of mind, do you have a fuel option for me?
Yes, with Fuel Up Front you pay for a full tank of fuel, based on the manufacturers stated fuel tank capacity for your vehicle plus our costs of refuelling the vehicle for you. Then you just return the vehicle with whatevers left in the tank (even if it's virtually empty) so long as the engine still runs.

How do I calculate the cost of Fuel Up Front?
Depending on where you are renting we charge the average fuel price at the start of your rental period as stated on this EU fuel index: http://ec.europa.eu/energy/observatory/oil/bulletin_en.htm. However, you do not get a refund for any fuel you don't use.

No, if you want to take advantage of Fuel Up Front, you must ask for it during the booking process or when you pick up the vehicle.

I plan to travel less than 120 kilometres , do I still need to fill up?
Yes, often the fuel gauges still look full, so we ask you to fill up the tank near the return location and show us a copy of the receipt.  If you do not have time to fill up the tank, or can't show us a receipt, we will apply EZ Fuel to cover our costs of refuelling the vehicle for you. 

How much is EZ Fuel?
Depending on where you are renting, you pay a fixed fee of between 14 Euro and 16 Euro.

What are my options if I do not return the vehicle full and haven't bought Fuel up Front?
Pay on Return will apply if you have driven more than 120 kilometres and:

  • Do not buy fuel up front
  • Do not return the vehicle with a full tank

How do I calculate the cost of Pay on Return?
You pay for fuel based on the factory-installed fuel gauge rounded down to the nearest eighth (1/8) of a tank. This is based on the manufacturers stated fuel tank capacity.

We charge between 1.5 and three times the average fuel price at the end of the rental period for Belgium as stated on this EU fuel index. The price per litre will be stated on your rental agreement. This charge covers our cost of driving to the nearest petrol station at short notice, and potentially delaying the next customers rental.

Popular optional extras to rent

I have small children, do you offer child seats?
Yes, we offer baby, infant, child and booster seats.  A baby seat is typically suitable for a child from birth to 12 months old and weighing no more than 13 kilos.  An infant seat is typically suitable for a child aged 9 months to 4 years old and weighing between 9 and 18 kilos.  A child seat is typically suitable for a child aged 4 to 11 years old and weighing between 15 and 36 kilos.  A booster seat is typically suitable for a child aged 8 to 11 years old and weighing between 20 and 45 kilos.

In some rental locations, we may arrange for a third party to fit the seat for you. But remember, it is always your responsibility to check the seat is fitted correctly before you drive away.

Please note: In Belgium all children must normally use a child car seat until they're 18 years old or 135cm tall. 

How much are your child seats?
The fee for renting a seat will depend on where you are renting, but you can expect it to cost between 6 Euro and 19 Euro a day. You will only be charged for a maximum of 72 Euro  and get to use the seat for the duration of your rental, up to 30days.
 
If the seat is damaged, lost or stolen, you will have to pay for a replacement. This is likely to cost between 100 Euro and 250 Euro on top of the hire fee.  If you can show the damage or loss was not in any way your fault or due to your negligence, we will refund this cost to you.
